Watch CraigsList in your area. Honestly, you can find some prime gear on the cheap. Just like motorcycles people will buy it all new, top of the line with all these ideas they have, it never happens. The gear might get 1-2 trips (if any at all) and sit in their closet for 2-3 years. They need some cash to pay off their X-mas debts and that's an easy way to get it. You get virtually new gear anywhere from 20%-40% of retail, they get to clean out a closet and put a few bucks back in their pocket. Don't hesitate to ask on here if an item is good or not or even just google the name and review and see what you find.

Good luck and don't give up!
